M0052 Office Supplies and Equipment Contract
Please note that the Division of Purchase and Property has received several protests to the announced award of the contract to replace Staples’ current contract #74337 (M0052 Office Supplies and Equipment). The current contract expires on 7/31/10. Until the Division is able to address and respond to each protest, the State will not have an active contract for Office Supplies to use starting on 8/1/10. This process may take several days to complete.
It is advised that should you have an urgent need to procure office supplies (including copy paper) during this non-contract period, that you either place your PO’s by COB 7/30/10 against the current contract or procure what you need on a limited basis via the Delegated Purchasing Authority (DPA).
